More Rohingyas flee to Bangladesh as violence spreads in Myanmar

More Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar poured into neighboring Bangladesh this week, with some feared to have drowned after a boat sank during a bid to flee violence that has killed at least 86 people and displaced 30,000.

Some Rohingya refugees have been missing since Tuesday after a group crossed the River Naaf that separates Myanmar and Bangladesh. Those who managed to enter Bangladesh sought shelter in refugee camps or people's homes.

"There was a group of people from our village who crossed the river by boat to come here, but suddenly the boat sank," said Humayun Kabir, the father of three children untraceable since the mishap.

Although many of those on board could swim, and were able to reach the river bank, seven people remain missing, he added, his children among them.

Myanmar troops poured into the western state of Rakhine along the frontier with Bangladesh in response to coordinated attacks on three border posts on Oct. 9 that killed nine police officers.

Rohingya residents and human rights groups accuse the military and border guard forces of raping Rohingya women, torching houses and killing civilians during operations there. The Myanmar government and military deny the accusations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Aung San Suu Kyi's inability to put down the violence against the Rohingya does not augur well for the future of peace in her country.

I frankly would have expected more of a Nobel Peace Prize winner; but then again, look at all the carnage the US's President Obama has created since becoming a recipient of that prize, which actually makes the awarding of it to him on esick joke!!
